Pro-Line Avenger HP 1/8th buggy street tyres

Pro-Line have introduced their new Avenger HP belted tyres for 1/8th buggies. Pro-Line has developed the technology to mould a high-performance herringbone weave pattern belt inside of the Avenger HP. The belted street tyres were specifically made for 1/8th scale buggies that love to go fast and will not balloon or expand during use. The Avenger HP tyres are pre-mounted on Mach 10 black wheels so drivers don’t have to worry about gluing their own tyres or waiting for them to dry. The Mach 10 features ten aggressive spokes that will make the buggy look fast even sitting still. The Mach 10 wheels have a 17mm hex and are made from a single moulded piece of high-quality nylon proudly produced by Pro-Line in the USA.
